Among Top Electrical Engineering Schools, Florida Tech Stands Out
Small Class Sizes and Personalized Faculty Mentorship Puts Florida Tech On Top
The second largest department in the College of Engineering, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering provides students a climate of innovation with few restrictions when pursuing their senior design project. Unlike other top electrical engineering schools you might consider, Florida Tech is listed among the Fiske Guide's "Engineering/Top Technical Institutes" and Parade Magazine's College A-List in Engineering, and accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
Low Student-to-Faculty Ratio Offers Personalized Attention
Florida Tech students benefit from a close-knit, small class environment, something you will not find at many top electrical engineering schools. Additionally, eligible students have an opportunity to work with well-established faculty on relevant research including wireless systems, materials, fiber-optics, speech and image processing, systems engineering and machine learning.
As one of the top electrical engineering schools, we know you expect quality educators. Ph.D. Professors teach most of the classes at Florida Tech, and offer personalized attention and regular availability for student advising. Our faculty is diverse, with specialties in a variety of areas. They are all active in teaching, involved in professional organizations and research, and some are recipients of Florida Tech teaching and research awards.
High Tech Laboratories & Facilities
Excellent facilities are vital to all top electrical engineering schools and Florida Tech does not disappoint. All engineering students have full access to the F. W. Olin Engineering Complex, a state-of-the-art multimillion-dollar facility that provides an outstanding learning environment outfitted with the instruments and equipment students will encounter in the workplace. It is equipped with 21st century electronic and communications technology, 26 research and teaching laboratories, and a 142-seat multimedia auditorium.
Culture of Innovation
Another reason Florida Tech is one of the top electrical engineering schools is the program's culture of innovation and hands-on learning. Students are not only taught the material critical to electrical engineering, but are mentored so they can demonstrate–through practical application–mastery of that material. As a result, electrical engineering students graduate with the confidence and competence to enter a variety of competitive career fields.
Great Florida Location In Florida's High Tech Corridor
In terms of location, most top electrical engineering schools don't come close to Florida Tech. Our students enjoy our beautiful 130-acre campus located in Florida's Space Coast within the Florida High Tech Corridor, which is home to the fifth largest high-tech workforce in the nation. With more than 5,000 high-tech companies in the region, Florida Tech is able to secure an abundance of internship and networking opportunities.
What's more, Atlantic Ocean beaches spanning 72 miles and the most diverse estuary in the North America, the Indian River Lagoon, are just minutes away. The Melbourne area boasts many recreational activities, and is a short drive to Orlando attractions such as Disney World and Universal Studios. On campus activities abound from intramural and collegiate sports to clubs, concerts and festivals. Whether it's to learn, work or play, Florida Tech students can do it all at one of the top electrical engineering schools.
